There has also been a lot of speculation regarding Harry Kane’s Tottenham future and whether he will remain in North London or seek a big-money move (Daily Mail).
A report by Football.London journalist, Alasdair Gold, has now detailed the club’s plans this summer as far as attacking options are concerned.
Gold claims that Spurs will not entertain the prospect of selling Kane under any circumstances this summer. It is suggested that, with four years left on his contract, no club can realistically hope to meet Tottenham’s valuation of the striker.
Meanwhile, Gold also suggests that Troy Parrott could be sent out on loan, with another striker expected to come in. Olivier Giroud is sighted as the most likely option to arrive in North London this summer.
The Chelsea striker’s contract with the Blues runs out in the summer and it is suggested that he fits the profile of what the Lilywhites are going for due to his experience and ability to serve as a back-up to Kane.
Additionally, it is asserted that the deal would make sense for the club financially, as Spurs are unlikely to be able to spend big money on players this summer due to the economic crunch as a result of the coronavirus shutdown.

None of these revelations are too surprising. Parrott needs to be loaned out since Jose has made it clear that he’s not yet ready for first-team action. I also believe that we are likely to go for a centre forward of Giroud’s mould as it will provide us with a plan B that we’ve been lacking since Llorente left.
